Glamping places in Slovenia – Full list

The last time I wrote a post on glamping, you guys gave me great feedback. In the post I mentioned some glamping places around here in Europe, among them two in Slovenia. But now I decided to dedicate a whole post to glamping places in Slovenia only! This small country, which happens to be my home land, has a lot to offer!

So here it is, glamping in Slovenia: from good to extravagant, cozy to unexpected, from wooden huts to wine barrels!

Full list:

1. Garden Village Bled.

Mentioned in my previous post on the topic, Garden Village Bled undoubtedly is the most “glam” out of all glamping accomodations in Slovenia. Open since June 2014, it offers guests a choice between tree houses, pier tents, glamping tents, and apartments with jacuzzi. Also the most expensive of all options, it will satisfy even the most demanding guests.

2.  Alpine Glamping at Kamp Alpe

In contrast to the previous accommodation, Alpine glamping features very simple wooden huts. They are situated in the middle of the forest to give guests maximum contact with the nature. Like their motto goes, glamorous + camping + Alps = Alpine glamping!

3. Park Idila

As the name reveals, Park Idila is located at an idyllic lake Blosko. Wooden huts/tents are simple yet elegant, and the camp features a restaurant and offers sport activities.

4. Natura Eco Camping Kranjska Gora

This eco camping spot has in its offer glamping tents and hanging tents -first of its kind in Slovenia. These tents are hanging from a tree. Because they are not touching the ground, it is less humid inside them. One such tent can accommodate two adults and two children.

5. Gozdne vile glamping

Something less glamorous and less expensive than Garden Village Bled, but still sophisticated- Gozdne Vile (Forest Villas) are located in Bled and offer everything a glamper wants: comfortable lodging, unspoiled nature, and additional perks like hot tubs (made of wood, of course). Guests can choose their preferred villa and some are situated on the river.

6. Wine barrel village

I saved the most interesting for the end! At Terme Ptuj you can spend the night inside a huge wine barrel! Wine barrels are big enough to accommodate two people and offer the most unique experience. Surrounded by vineyards, you really cannot get closer to feeling the centuries old tradition of wine making.

Sailing at Miramare castle -Vacation video!

What have we been up to in the past couple of weeks? We took a well deserved vacation in Italy!! Lots of laying on the beach, eating (too much) good food (especially gelato), drinking good wine ;-), swimming, and just relaxing.

And oh yeah, we also took a ride with a sailboat and took videos with a drone of racing catamarans (from the sailboat :-D) It was my very first sailboat ride and I loved it! The catamaran ride was cool too, very exciting when the wind pushes it up almost vertically to the sea (happened when I was up)!!! We did that in close proximity to Miramare castle, one of the most beautiful castles in the world (in my opinion).

But enough of me, have a look at this short video filmed with a quadcopter and that will tell you more than I possibly can! Enjoy 😉

 

Travel idea: Glamping

I know this is already an old trend, but in my opinion it’s still hot! I’ve never been glamping but I would like to try once. Glamping doesn’t have much to do with camping because it’s too comfortable, except that the accommodation is placed directly in the nature.

I gathered some ideas on where to go glamping in Europe. Actually two locations I found are in Bled, Slovenia, and the other one is in Provence, France.

For your information: Glamping Bled is the cheapest option, the prices start at 51€ for two people per night. Prices at Garden Village Bled start with 80€ in pier tents in low season, and 160€ for tree houses and glamping tents (in low season as well). Bubble hotel in Provence starts with 108€ per night. Let yourself be inspired! 😉

Amazing pool at the lake

Spa at the lake

I wanted to show you this awesome place I visited last week! (just had coffee on the terrace, ahem) It’s Spa at Millstatter See, Carinthia. Isn’t this the most awesome pool at the lakeside?!

I know there are many amazing pools on the beach front, but at the lake? This one is the coolest I have seen so far!

Have you seen any pools by the lake? Share!

First Sight – Our wedding location

Whether a person, a pet, an object, or a place, write about something you connected with from the very first second.

Daily Prompt


 

Derek and I had a short engagement -he proposed middle of July and we were married on October 12 2013. Therefore we had to make decisions fast. It wouldn’t work out well if we hadn’t known exactly what we wanted. But we did. One of the first things we needed to arrange was the location of the ceremony + party. I quickly started searching around for nice spots in my home country.

I discovered an old mansion, that belongs to a wine company Dveri Pax. I never even heard about that place before, let alone visited it. After seeing the pictures of the mansion’s surroundings and their wine cellar, where they also hold dinner parties, I sensed I was onto something good.

The next day, I drove there with two of my friends in the late summer afternoon. The sun was low on the horizon and was the land was bathing in the warm light. We were driving on curvy countryside roads when a beautiful sight opened bellow us: Dveri Pax surrounded by trees, ponds, and fields of grass. I was charmed there and then, and seeing the property close-up only reassured me of its beauty. A kind worker took us on a tour of the surroundings. I already saw myself taking wedding pictures there. We were also taken inside the mansion, into a big, wine-cellar-like hall, entirely made of stone. This is where we would have our celebration. And we did. SONY DSC

Next weekend when Derek came to visit me, I took him there to have a look himself, and we were unanimous that this was what we wanted. We knew it from the first second.  pond at wedding location
